request from my son one morning this week I say unusual because my little tyke a sometime newspaper reader is no fan of this column Conversations about my writing over the past year go like this: “What did you write about today” I reply And I get one of only two responses: “What’s the point” and “So boring” I am a well-known loather of Crocs Ever so often I have younger mothers greet me at restaurants with “We love your column but why do you hate Crocs so much” They’re plain ugly why else But since I am of the vintage when what my child thinks of me matters more than much else — Crocs

Firstly all kids have strong fashion tastes Girls who are fashion victims of pink-purple Disney princesses obviously do As do boys who gravitate between numbered hoodies and a neat checks shirt Kids know what they love even if no one else approves A protective parent has a natural instinct to overpower their choices so as to not make them look silly But I’ve learned that allowing them a bit of their own experimenting gives them comfort and confidence I’ve loathed my son wearing a T-shirt under a button-open shirt but it’s his favourite look I’ve even succumbed to buying him Crocs While everyone will love Suri Cruise and Harper Beckham’s high-fashion wardrobe I reserve a loud cheer for Angelina Jolie whose daughter Shiloh likes boy’s clothes And for Nils Pickert a writer from Germany

late in the night to take the ace spinneron board According to Ganguly the selectors were keen for a left-arm spinner Murali Kartik for the tour Down Under but on Ganguly’s insistence Kumble was taken as he returned with 24 wickets the highest in the series with India retaining the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after drawing the series 1-1 “The selectors were picking Kartik saying ‘Kumble doesn’t pick wickets outside India’ But I was hell bent and said I won’t go without Kumble as the meeting went on till 2’o clock in the night” Ganguly recollected the incident File photo of Anil Kumble Getty Images “Selectors told me if Kumble doesn’t take wickets and team doesn’t do well ‘we’ll have a new captain’ We had the best ever Australian trip in the history Kumble finished that season as the highest wicket taker on the ICC calendar” Ganguly said Ganguly pointed out the incident during his address on ‘Transforming setbacks into comebacks’ during INFOCOM 2015 the 14th edition of the annual Information and Communication Technology conference One of the biggest things for a leader is about creating trust Ganguly said adding about the incident “He (Kumble) was a champion and was going through a phase when he was not taking wickets That was a part of setbacks That time you don’t ask him to leave but give him that extra yards That’s how you create trust” Ganguly also said he could have called it quits after being dropped in 2006 but he never gave up as he did not want to regret it later “It was one of the biggest setbacks after being left out because of my coach (Greg) Chappell It happened after getting a hundred in Zimbabwe But that was one part of my life which changed me as a person If you keep trying hard you’ll come out of it “I came back to score my first ever double hundred (against Pakistan) I also got my first ever Test hundred at (my home ground) the Eden So it’s about being passionate about what you do and love your job” He also recalled his 98 on his ODI comeback against the West Indies in January 2007 “After coming back from a six months’ layoff I was very nervous on the eve of the Nagpur ODI I could not sleep I was so angry and at 3am I called the reception to ‘find me a way to sleep’. I was so nervous and desperate to do well I didn’t get one minute of sleep till 6am and we left for the ground at 645am being a day match “The first ball I got hit on elbow but I went on to get a 98

Kahlique Ahmed | Ahmedabad | Updated: February 1 2016 5:20 am Illustration: Subrata Dhar Related News HAVING SET a target to cultivate 2500 new start-ups in a span of five years Gujarat government is planning to launch a Rs 250-crore start-up fund in the next couple of months The fund will not only provide crucial financial support to first-generation entrepreneurs it will also help the state government put a firm foot forward in implementing its plan to nurture the entrepreneurial skills of Gujaratis in an organised manner A year has already gone by since the Gujarat government announced its new Industrial Policy 2015 The policy for the first time contained detailed schemes for cultivating on an average 500 start-ups every year Little seems to have moved on the ground during the last 12 months as state government officials associated with implementing the policy try to align the state policy with the one launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in mid-January this year “Start-ups are brilliant ideas In Gujarat we have already come up with a policy We might improve our policy looking at the needs of the future We have also already identified institutions that will be responsible to help the start-ups” said state Finance Minister Saurabh Patel while talking about the start-up policy on the sidelines of an event recently The effort by the state government to create a favourable ecosystem of start-ups is evident from the preamble of Gujarat’s Industrial policy that states: “More than 60 percent of Gujarat’s population is in the age group of 15-59 years A young population means a young workforce which in turn implies a more innovative and entrepreneurial mindset The government is focused strongly not just on the employability but also on initiating the start-up incubators/centres for developing entrepreneurial skills in the youth… The primary mission of the Industrial Policy includes innovation start-ups and technology transfer As per the state government start-ups will create opportunities for young population in the future” The state government in association with its own venture-funding arm — GVFL Limited (formerly Gujarat Venture Finance Limited) — is also looking to launch a new Rs 250 crore fund that will specially address the equity requirements of start-ups in the state “The Rs 250 crore fund known as the GVFL Start-up Fund will be launched in the next couple of months The finer details are currently being worked out” said a senior official of GVFL whose first fund for start-ups was launched way back in 1990 Till now GVFL has launched about two seed funds and three start-up funds and has financially supported over 80 companies including several start-up firms like Saraf Foods Cadila Laboratories Limited Gujarat Surgico Ltd 20 Mircons Ltd Neilsoft Ltd eInfochips Ltd Sahajanand Laser Technology Ltd and others The state government’s target of cultivating 2500 start-ups currently looks a bit distant considering that only a handful from Gujarat had tasted success in the recent past According to a NASSCOM report published in October 2015 there are over 4200 start-ups in the country of which “more than 65 per cent are located in Bangalore (26%) NCR (23 %) and Mumbai (17%)” The trio is followed by Hyderabad (8%) Chennai (6%) and Pune (6%) The report titled Start-up India — Momentous Rise of the Indian Start-up Ecosystem describes Ahmedabad as an “emerging city” on the start-up arena that has “incubators mentors and a well-entrenched ecosystem for start-ups” Three of the 11-government recognised incubators operate in Ahmedabad Sunil Parekh who is part of one such incubator in the city says “At present there are about 150 odd ideas that are getting incubated across Ahmedabad alone Most of these are in the e-commerce aggregators health tech Internet of Things and consumer services” Parekh who has also been a board member of Start-up State-level Implementation Committee of Government of Gujarat however says that despite 11 incubators in institutions in Ahmedabad-Gandhinagar the ecosystem “has not matured as yet” and needs entrepreneurs who create long-term value with their enterprises rather than those that run with the dotcom products which typically thrive in highly competitive business environment The presence of “me too” ideas which cannot be described as “innovative” is not encouraging “Novel ideas that can bring out new products are less than five percent ‘Me-too’ ideas are being encouraged to drop out” says Parekh while talking about the prevailing situation in the state’s start-up space Industrialists like Piyush Shah executive vice-chairman and MD Hitachi Hi-Rel Power Electronics Pvt Ltd while speaking about Gujarat start-up policy recently have described the sustenance allowance of Rs 10000 provided to start-up firms in the Gujarat as “peanuts” Others have also demanded a sizable increase in the assistance of Rs 10 lakh provided in the new policy as cost of raw material components required for new product development to start-up firms in Gujarat In spite of the perceived shortcomings what holds water is that an ecosystem for start-ups is definitely being created in Gujarat The need of the hour is nurturing them say experts Amit Gohil who has been working with The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE) a 22-year-old organisaton that has been assisting start-ups says “Gujarat used to lack proper ecosystem for funding start-ups and for scaling them This is the primary reason for the state lagging behind in creating start-ups But the scene is changing now Earlier the investors did not see any alternate business opportunity in it But a complete paradigm shift is taking place in this direction” Giving an instance of a start-up firm PlexusMD — an aggregator for doctors that attracted a fund of Rs two crore from a local businessman Gohil says that local start-ups like wWhere and PlexusMD have also begun hiring from engineering colleges indicating these ventures are sure to succeed and make profit wWhere has received a financial assistance of Rs 12 crore from a local investor as an equity shareholder Mitesh Shethwala founder of Alagrandcom a start-up firm dealing with online marketing of textiles says the major problem for Ahmedabad to create start-ups was the “unavailability of experienced employees and funds to sustain the new ventures launched by students studying in final year of these courses” But the situation according to him is changing with investors stepping forward to finance start-ups Yash Shah whose start-up Gridleio a platform for internal communication among companies of similar nature have attracted 126 companies in the last two years Winner of several awards in setting up a successful start-up Shah says “Ahmedabad will not stay behind in start-ups” Hiranmay Mahanta who helped formulate the start-up policy in the country and is currently managing Gujarat Technological University’s innovation council and incubation centre called Student Start-up Support System says there is a need to decentralise innovation and entrepreneurship at district and taluka levels of the state “Take entrepreneurship beyond big centres like Ahmedabad and support them in their initial stages when they face financial hardship to bring industrial and business revolution” Mahanta said For all the

(Source: AP) Top News Juergen Klinsmann is targeting at least four points from two games against Mexico and Costa Rica this month as the United States aim to get off to a fast start in the final round of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup In an interview with Reuters Klinsmann said the United States were starting to see the fruits of blooding young players into the side in an up-and-down 2015 and that the experience gained at the Copa America was invaluable “These first two games are huge — we’ve got the two most difficult games right away with Mexico and Costa Rica so we want to make sure we get off on the right foot with points right away” said Klinsmann “It would be great to get three points against Mexico and at least a tie in Costa Rica “Obviously to win both games would be awesome It would be great to get the results to finish off a year that’s been really promising” The United States host Mexico on Nov 11 at the Mapfre Stadium in Columbus Ohio where they have beaten the same opponents 2-0 in all four previous games They travel to face Costa Rica four days later In the final CONCACAF qualifying round the top three from a six-team group qualify for the finals in Russia with the fourth-placed team going into a playoff against a side from the Asian confederation Klinsmann who on Thursday was named the fifth honorary captain of the German national team and was lauded in a speech by Chancellor Angela Merkel said the “magic” of playing in Columbus was that it was a true football stadium “Columbus is a special place for us” Klinsmann said “There’s just such an aura about it with its home field advantage and a strong belief that we can always win there There’s a lot of confidence whenever we play there” NEXT BIG STAGE The 52-year-old took over as US coach in 2011 and is trying to guide the team to their eight straight World Cup finals appearance They had to endure a nervy fourth round of CONCACAF qualifying which encompasses teams from North and Central America and the Caribbean including a goalless draw against Trinidad and Tobago and a 2-0 defeat to Guatemala However they overcame that difficult start to finish top of their group “We want some results at the finish of what has been a promising year” he said “We had some hiccups in 2015 but we’ve introduced some young players and we’re seeing them take over personality wise “That’s what you want to see as a coach a team that moves on and gets ready for the next big stage” He said the Copa America had bolstered his team’s confidence and pointed to the breakout performances by John Brooks Bobby Wood Christian Pulisic DeAndre Yedlin and Geoff Cameron He added Jordan Morris and Ethan Horvath had also had strong years “We have hope that there will be even more younger players coming through” he said “There’s a lot of competition within the group We saw a lot of younger players who made huge steps forward and that puts some of the older guys on higher alert” As coach of the German national team from 2004 to 2006 Klinsmann embarked on a series of reforms that initially drew much criticism before they finished third at the 2006 World Cup on home soil He has had to endure another period of criticism in the United States but said their showing against the top teams at the Copa America’s 100th anniversary tournament had impressed American fans “There will always be criticism when games are lost” he said “But I think people in America are understanding more and more what the international game is all about “People saw at the Copa America that teams like Argentina Brazil and Columbia are the crème le la crème “People saw these teams play and thought ‘wow’ It was huge that we made it to the final four” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top News 15 per
